The northbound Interstate 75 on-ramp off State Road (S.R.) 200 will be closed nightly from Wednesday, Jan. 22, through Saturday, Jan. 25, while construction crews rebuild the road base in that area. The ramp will be closed from 7:30 p.m. to 7:30 a.m. Electronic message boards and other signage will be used to direct traffic to alternate routes to access I-75 northbound. The nearest northbound access to I-75 is at S.R. 40. Motorists on S.R. 200 can travel north on Southwest 60th Avenue, about two and a half miles west of I-75, to get to S.R. 40, then turn right on S.R. 40 to get to I-75. Motorist can also go north on Southwest 27th Avenue and turn left on S.R. 40 to get to the northbound I-75 on ramp.
